Equinix to Provide Direct Connect to Aliyun Cloud Services

Equinix signed an agreement with Aliyun, Alibaba Group's cloud computing arm, to provide direct access to Aliyun's cloud platform via the Equinix Cloud Exchange in Hong Kong and Silicon Valley. Aliyun is the largest public cloud service provider in China and operates the country's largest content delivery network.

This will provide multinational, Chinese, and North American enterprises with dedicated and secure access to the full suite of Aliyun's cloud services. In addition to the Aliyun cloud platform, Equinix will also offer direct access to additional cloud-based services from Aliyun, including SaaS-based applications.  Expansion to other Equinix facilities in Asia and North America is anticipated.

"Our multi-national enterprise customers are increasingly asking for access to the Aliyun cloud platform, as they deploy cloud-based applications across Asia. By providing this access in two strategic markets, we're empowering businesses to build secure, private clouds, without compromising network and application performance," said Chris Sharp, vice president, cloud innovation, Equinix.

"Aliyun is very excited about our global partnership with Equinix, who not only has a global footprint of cutting-edge data centers, but has also brought together the most abundant cloud players and tenants in the cloud computing ecosystem on its Equinix Cloud Exchange platform.  Connecting the Equinix ecosystem with our Aliyun cloud services on Cloud Exchange will provide customers with the best-of-breed choices and flexibility," said Sicheng Yu, vice president, Aliyun.
